WEP…Write…Edit…Publish – BACK OF THE DRAWER WINNERS for February 2017

What an incredible challenge. The entries were magnificent, stupendous, amazing, awesome, imaginative, superb, outstanding, and any other descriptive adjective you can conjure for excellent. But dear entrants you’ve made it damn near impossible to put only one at the top! Which we actually love, such superb writing! A pure pleasure to read!



Kudos to Olga Godim, our badge designer and Nilanjana Bose, our prompt guru! BACK OF THE DRAWER was inspired and inspiring, as evidenced by the various tomes. . .
. . . a letter that leaves a marriage in turmoil. . . . a notebook full of memories, a connection to someone lost. . . . letters that revive a broken heart or detail the horrors of war. . . . the secret to longevity or the entrance to another dimension. . . . the inspiration for ghost stories or for the magic that saves lives or in some cases destroys them. . . . a warning, or the evidence that points to a murderer. Even dragons and elephants . . .
Such imagination, and truly exceptional writing. Congratulations, all of you! But there can only be one!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WINNERS
Those who made the shortlist were


Thanks, everyone, for an exciting introduction to a new year of fabulous WEP Challenges.

Don’t forget we hold them every other month now.
Our next one is April

According to the poem by Peace and Love by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
“Despair and hope may meet within one heart.”
So, April - the month inspired by poetry. It’s also the month of the A to Z challenge which takes our corner of the web by storm. The WEP Challenge falls on the ‘P’ day, so here’s your opportunity to fit into the ‘P’ category and participate in the A - Z and WEP at the same time, if you so desire. If you're not participating in the A - Z, go for it!
 But just because April is poetry month, it doesn’t mean you have to post poetry (do I hear a sigh of relief?) There are any number of ways you might express Peace & Love --
                   . . . a love story, a call for world peace, a refugee story, the possibilities are endless. . .
See you then, but be sure to return for the winner’s guest post!

We'd love if you'd Tweet one of these:
